How do you make Cashew Nut Milk from home?

To celebrate National Milk Day with our US friends on Jan 11th, we decided to dig into the perks of nut milk and even throw in some of our personal favourite recipes! We love nut milk not only because it’s tasty (although that’s reason enough) but nut milk also provides a host of health and environmental benefits.

One of our favourite nuts are cashews! Cashews contain a range of healthy fats, protein and a variety of vitamins and minerals. Using your MOD Cold Press Juicer to cold press these nuts into a creamy milk will ensure that all the goodness ends up in your milk without any of those hidden nasties that are added to store bought milk. 

There are so many benefits to cashews but here are some of our favourites: 

  • The healthy fats present in cashews, known as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, help to boost heart health and reduce the risk of heart disease;

  • Cashews are packed with magnesium — a vital mineral for many body processes, including nerve function, heart health and blood pressure regulation;

  • Lastly, they are also rich in copper. This mineral plays a crucial role in the creation of skin proteins, in particular, collagen and elastin which will strengthen your skin and improve overall elasticity.
